BUTTERSCOTCH CHOCOLATE CHUNK OATMEAL COOKIES

BUTTERSCOTCH CHOCOLATE CHUNK OATMEAL COOKIES

Oatmeal cookies are my favorite! At the beginning of the year I made these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and they were lovely. When the weather finally started to cool down I knew I wanted to make oatmeal cookies again, but I wanted to try something different. I wanted to add a little extra pizazz! So, for my birthday weekend, which started November 1st I made these super amazing butterscotch chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies.

Friends, theses cookies are amazing, they maybe a new favorite of mine. When I baked these we had finished decorating for Christmas too so the house smelled of warm cookie goodies and it was Christmas everywhere. I loved it!
